For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
2 Corinthians 4:6
Darkness; that period during trials where you’re waiting for God to open a door. During that season you can choose whether to be positive or constantly mope around. Others are watching, so how you choose to react matters. As believers, we have to navigate these trying times, and in the process, glorify God. Maximize your refining time by being as joyful as possible and honoring God at the same time.
